Learned Lessons from 5G Launch in India and Japan

Below some of the 5G key lessons provded by Reliance Jio in India an Rakuten in Japan for their next 5G launch that can apply to carriers working to balance the capex lift of 5G while fighting an uphill ARPU battle.

1- Operators should focus on replacing their legacy networks to pave the way to all IP networks, with new IT infrastructure rather than telco components. 

2- A standalone 5G network requires a much more IT-centric approach to support different use cases and automatically provision networks.

3- Virtualisation and cloudification of core network, separating control plan from user plane (CUPS) are key functionalities.

4- Putting another radio that gives you speeds and feeds, you will never monetize that. But if you create use cases that will solve the world’s problems, you will monetize.

5- Bringing data center to the edge and going to cloud transformation will help some functions happen as needed with no manual intervention.

6- 5G isn’t just about the radio access network, It’s about virtualization, artificial intelligence, machine learning, the internet of things and enterprise enablement.

7- If you want to go fast, certainly go alone. If you want to go far, go together. So Open Souce Software is another secret Key. 

8- Open RAN is the start of the business transformation of the industry, products with O-RAN interfaces is starting to come to market.

9-  There is still not a single telco in the world that has moved all of its workloads to the cloud, rakuten in Japan will be the first

9- A cloud-first strategy takes cost out of 5G.
